Apple Reports First Quarter 2009 Results

Good news for Apple all around:

Apple sold 2,524,000 Macintosh computers during the quarter, representing nine percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold a record 22,727,000 iPods during the quarter, representing three percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Quarterly iPhone units sold were 4,363,000, representing 88 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter.

“Even in these economically challenging times, we are incredibly pleased to report our best quarterly revenue and earnings in Apple history — surpassing $10 billion in quarterly revenue for the first time ever,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. 

I expected the iPod Touch to be the sleeper hit, but according to Apple’s data summary (PDF), while iPod unit sales are up 3% over last year, iPod revenue is down 16%.
